Gershwin Prize: Elton John and Bernie Taupin


The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song salutes Elton John and Bernie Taupin. A once-in-a-lifetime meeting between John, a young piano player, and lyricist Taupin together in 1967, they have forged a songwriting partnership that continues after more than 50 years.

John and Taupin will receive the Gershwin Prize at an all-star concert in Washington, D.C., on March 20. Artists from across the musical spectrum will join the national library and U.S. leaders to honor the great songwriting duo. The lineup includes Joni Mitchell, Garth Brooks, Brandi Carlile, Annie Lennox, Metallica, Maren Morris, Billy Porter, Charlie Puth and Jacob Lusk of Gabriels.
